Overview

I have owned the two original Volumes of "Memoirs of Mississippi, 1891" for over twenty years, but only recently tried to use them for research on original issues for Mississippi from its beginnings to the Civil War, but size, format, age of printed pages, and un-search ability of them made it impossible to construct a summary of the information. I decided that it needed to be made more usable by transcribing it into a modern format (digital, and searchable), and more economical to reproduce and share with others. I originally thought that a chapter by chapter transcription and publishing would be best, but decided that a somewhat larger, but less than volume size would be best.
This book includes Chapters 1 through 5. Chapter 1 gives an introduction, a preface by the original editors, and goes on to discuss the topography, natural history, and paleontology of Mississippi. Chapter 2 presents the Indians, their wars and their Cessions. Chapter 3 goes into an overview of the exploration and settlement of the area (southeast United States). Chapter 4 is devoted to the organization and governmental form of the state. Finally in this first of the series, Chapter 5 lays out the legal and judicial history.
We hope you enjoy this early history, of a wonderful area of this country, and the trials it endured to become so.
